Hi, kids. A couple questions for anyone with experience with/knowledge about this plant. The biggest is, what are its light requirements? Can it grow under normal room light? I am thinking about adding it to the open part of my tank, where it would pick up little or no light from my cf's.

How does it hold up to nibblers? I have a gourami who likes to graze (and has just about wiped out my ambulia), and I eventually might put some water lettuce in with my goldfish, if it can stand up them.

Anything else I need to know? I really want to get some of this to provide better habitat and suck up some excess nitrates, but want to know what I'm getting into.

Thanks!

Tom

Also, I have the same questions about regular (not dwarf) water lettuce. Gracias!
